Managed Hosting Services

What is managed hosting? In the IT world, “hosting” refers to buying space on servers for a specific purpose. It can also include leased hardware associated with the hosting service. There are many different types of managed hosting services a business or client can purchase in order to help grow their business. The key is finding the right services.

Most managed hosting services relieve the client of the majority of maintenance work, taking over the role as administrator of the hardware, operating systems, and system software. Clients typically have administrative access, but it is rarely used as the data center or secure hosting provider takes care of any tasks necessary for administrative access.

This includes:

  • Setting up and configuring new hardware
  • Installing and configuring software
  • Maintaining general system maintenance
  • Monitoring and updating hardware and software
  • Managing patches
  • Providing the client with IT support

Depending on the hosting package and provider, your managed hosting package can include various additional features and options. This can include various services, such as increased security hosting, recovery options, backups, DaaS, SaaS, IaaS, e-mail hosting, and more.
